The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced a new set of standards for the Academy Awards's best picture category on Tuesday as part of efforts to improve representation in film for underrepresented racial minorities, women, LGBTQ people and people with disabilities.
A statement on the Academy's website detailed four categories of standards for films, at least two of which a film must meet in order to be considered for a best picture nomination.
The four standards deal with a variety of issues including on-screen representation for actors and actresses of underrepresented groups in both casting and in the theme or subject matter of films, as well as off-screen opportunities in project leadership positions and general staffing.
The Oscars "must widen to reflect our diverse global population in both the creation of motion pictures and in the audiences who connect with them. The Academy is committed to playing a vital role in helping make this a reality, Academy President David Rubin and Academy CEO Dawn Hudson said in a joint statement accompanying the announcement. We believe these inclusion standards will be a catalyst for long-lasting, essential change in our industry.

I dont care anymore
The blacker your skin the more awards you win.
Not watching this B.S. any more.
Virtue signaling alert!
These people are pathetic
La-La Land doesn’t have to worry about the San Andreas Fault anymore.
It’s been stricken with a fatal disease, for which there will never be a virus.
Seriously, best picture but only if you meet these affirmative action standards.
“For the best Negro in a comedy”.
I was born in the Deep South in 1952. This sounds like we are going backwards.
So how can it still be called Best Picture? Is the movie industry really that stupid?
it’s now official: only “diverse” pics are allowed to be nominated, which means that all pics must conform to “diversity” ... these people are insane given that theaters are closed and going bankrupt and movie production is completely shutdown ... now they’re forcing future pics to conform with “diversity” as the goal rather than entertainment as the goal at the worst time possible in terms of attracting audiences ... also looks like only a tiny sliver of all possible stories are now possible to be made into movies .... and they didn’t need a Soviet Politburo to order this conformity of the “diverse”: they did it to themselves ...
The Left destroys what it touches. It’s what it does.
The Left won’t leave any area of life in peace. I’m so tired of hearing about this stuff.
If everybody has to be what they are, can it really be called acting?
I would say that 60% or more of the population is SICK TO DEATH of this racial BS too!! They wont say it out loud BUT they are!!
Has the Academy cleared this new policy with China yet? Have they submitted it for approval?
HARRISON BERGERON by Kurt Vonnegut, Jr.
THE YEAR WAS 2081, and everybody was finally equal. They weren’t only equal
before God and the law. They were equal every which way. Nobody was smarter
than anybody else. Nobody was better looking than anybody else. Nobody was
stronger or quicker than anybody else. All this equality was due to the
211th, 212th, and 213th Amendments to the Constitution, and to the unceasing
vigilance of agents of the United States Handicapper General.
Actually, blacks are about to thrown under the bus again. Because China is calling the shots now.
Let these idiots pander themselves into total mediocrity. Soon we will see awards for the best panderers and liberals...let’s see, who is on the list so far....
The NFL, NBA, Nike, Oscars, and the list goes on....
Unwatchable since 1985.
